Thenavattu: Angry Young Man

Starring: Jeeva, Poonam Bajwa

Direction: V V Kathir

Music: Srikanth Deva

Production: Antony

The title gives away the nature of the movie, the young man with loads of attitude and no fear at all. If the title is not enough, then the trailer should surely be and you couldn’t have missed those action packed frenetic trailers that have been doing the rounds for over a week now on the SUN Network. In case you are wondering why the SUN Network are so interested in this one, it is because they have bought Thenavattu. This will be SUN Picture’s second release after Kadhalil Vizhunden.
Starring Jeeva and Poonam Bajwa, Thenavattu has been directed by V.V. Kathir. Jeeva is certainly the USP of the movie. He will be on screen for the first time in 2008 after a mixed 2007 where he had the hugely appreciated Kattradhu Tamil, Rameshwaram- the movie that threatened to be a trendsetter but went down as another clichéd romance and the commercial Pori which could not hold on. But what Jeeva has earned himself over the 3 years since Ram is that of a conscientious actor who chooses carefully and puts script before self. Now, the trailer of Thenavattu have suggested that we have a very formulaic fare on hand with fights and songs galore.

Even during the making of the film, a fight sequence for which an entire hamlet was erected at the cost of around 50 lakhs had made some news. The fight was shot for nearly 15 days and reportedly has Jeeva going alone against 25 men. This is not the stuff you have come to associate with Jeeva but he is an actor who can pull things off quite well.
Music for the masses is another selling point of the movie. As pointed out in the official music review, Srikanth Deva does seem to have done well with Na. Muthukumar handling the lyrics for all five songs. The ‘Usulampatti Sandhayile’ number has caught on quite well and is acting as the fulcrum in the trailers along with Jeeva’s fiery dialogues and action. This Friday, Thenavattu gets to theaters and we get to see the commercial avatar of Jeeva. We liked him in Ram, we liked him in Kattradhu Tamil, will we like him in Thenavattu? Well, we’ll know by the weekend.
